Tutorial: salt & pepper

I love this card I made with some of the newer sets from Clear and Simple Stamps.  As an accent, I created a little banner to go around the sentiment. Here's how I did it:

  • Stamp or draw a banner onto scrap paper, and put a pin in each corner.  Since this is a simple shape, you can just use the pins- but if you were using a more intricate design, having it on paper first will help you with pin placement!

  • Cut a thin strip of paper or cardstock (or use a strip of quilling paper), and start forming it around the pins.

  • When you get to the end, use a dab of glue to adhere the ends together- make sure to pull the strip firmly before gluing so that your shape is not warped

  • Trim off the end

  • Sorry for the color change! I realized half-way through that I wanted to use coral instead of white, so I switched it out :)  I carefully placed my banner onto a piece of clear tape- this will help keep it's shape.

(sorry for my gross finger splint)

  • Trim the tape so you are not working with a huge piece.  Adhere little dots of liquid glue all around your banner (look carefully to the pic below, and you'll be able to see the little dots)

  • Place the banner onto your project, and gently peel off the tape.  I used clear tape so that I could see through it while adhering.

...and that's it!
